Lloyd's Canadian Policyholders - How to Make a Complaint

Find out how to make a complaint and the complaint handling procedure.

Lloyd’s strives to enhance your customer experience with us through superior service and innovative insurance products.

Lloyd's have developed a formal complaint handling protocol in accordance with the Insurance Companies Act of Canada to ensure your concerns as our valued customer are addressed expeditiously by our representatives. This protocol will assist you in understanding the steps we will undertake to help resolve any dispute which may arise with our product or service. All complaints will be handled in a professional manner. All complaints will be investigated, acted upon, and responded to in writing or by telephone by a Lloyd’s representative promptly after the receipt of the complaint. If you are not satisfied with our products or services, you can take the following steps to address the issue:

  • Firstly, please contact the broker who arranged the insurance on your behalf about your concerns so that he or she may have the opportunity to help resolve the situation.
  • If your broker is unable to help resolve your concerns, we ask that you provide us in writing an outline of your complaint along with the name of your broker and your policy number.

Please forward your complaint to:
